a dormant volcano

looks peaceful and enticing


its destructive power

forgotten

or never even known

by those who greet the sleeping beast


the pain it may have caused

remains in the past

with the souls it consumed

. . . or attempted to consume


surely some escaped its grasp

and vowed never to return

for they learned the truth

hidden just beneath the surface


a dormant volcano

is strong and elegant


its charm lives in the mystery

a mystery too far away to hold any real power

its outbursts are just a story now

a riveting tale

told to describe what it may have done

not what it could do


a dormant volcano feels distant

so people move closer

and closer

and closer


old worries fade

guards come down


in a state of slumber

it gives the illusion of safety

the quiet is comforting

hypnotizing

familiar


it's what you think it is until it's not


people forget

a dormant volcano can erupt

I am here

to reclaim my power

to step into a dream

that exists beyond the nighttime hour

I lost myself

in your ideas of me

I wanted to be everything

you wanted me to be

and between

all the versions

I tried hard to be

all the version

I wanted you to see

I lost the only thing I needed. . .

me
